Garden guru, Martha Stewart (By Ashley Minnings)
I had heard a lot about Canada Blooms since beginning my internship here, so when the event came to town I knew I had to go check it out for myself (especially since my crafting – and now gardening – idol Martha Stewart would be there!). The entire event was gorgeous and the fragrances throughout the building were amazing, but my number one highlight was, of course, Martha’s presentation (a very close second being my photo op with Frankie Flowers). I somehow managed to nab a front row seat and sat directly in front of her for an entire thirty minutes as she demonstrated her new gardening line for The Home Depot, answered a few audience questions and shelled out some gardening tips. Needless to say, her new line is gorgeous (even the pruners were pretty) and I’m definitely planning a little visit to The Home Depot to pick up those fennel seeds she recommended!
